I believe every person struggles with what to cook for their family. I struggled so much I used to avoid the thought until someone came downstairs and demanded dinner. I would open up the refrigerator and stand there. I do not know what I expected to happen but the chef I hoped for didn’t tumble out of my freezer.

I realized a couple of things that not planning resulted in. The first was my food budget was out of control. I mean truly mortifying. The second thing I realized is when I walked around the store and threw things in the basket I got home, and nothing went together. The third and most embarrassing thing is we began to throw away a lot of food.

The worst part about all of it is I felt I was failing. Then one day I saw a 7-day meal plan. I figured I could do anything for seven days, so I went through my families favorite recipes, and I wrote down a list of 30. I then created a calendar. I pulled out my family calendar to see what nights I should cook what meal on.

I felt like a rock star. I had a plan and for the first time in years. I wasn’t anxious when I opened up my refrigerator. Then something even better happened.

I figured out that I could double up some of my favorite recipes which saved me time and money and then the next month I would have less to cook. I find that using a calendar and a plan has helped me to become the mom I wanted to be. I no longer hide in the bathroom or the closet. Yes, I have done both hoping they found something to eat so I wouldn’t have to cook.

I use my calendar to save both money and time. You can read about how I have saved thousands using a calendar in this post How to save money using a calendar.
